about

The verses are in four and the chorus is in 3/4.

lyrics

Black gold, Texas Tea
Bubblin’ up from the bottom of the sea
But all across the land of the free you can still gas up your SUV
I guess that it might stop someday when it all bubbles up and floats away
And the turtles don’t have much to say as they’re swimming out to sea
And the trains still run and the planes still fly
And the factories still pump smoke in the sky
Our house is full of stuff we’ll keep till we die
But we got to make it somehow

And if we’re gonna waltz with the devil
It’s best to know who leads
I gotta sneaking suspicion that I know who
And it ain’t you and it ain’t me

Cool days. warm nights
Propane grills, electric lights
I can stream any movie I want tonight
My Bose 5.1 makes it sound just right
Got my iPod sync-ed to my laptop
Got my choice of malls if I wanna shop
I don’t want to make it stop but that black gulf is such a sight
You don’t get something without a cost
On the path to freedom I guess we got lost
And the new boss is surely the same old boss
On paper flat and green

If we’re gonna waltz with the devil
It’s best to know who leads
I gotta sneaking suspicion that I know who
And it ain’t you and it ain’t me
